Is it just me or does this wedding somehow remind you of the movie Chocolat (the one with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp)? There’s something a little bit gypsy and indulgent about it….I love it! Its SO creative and original…imaginative and just plain fun! I’m pretty sure everyone there just had to let loose and just have a good time.

From Belathée: Kali is a decorator and stylist and artist all in one and her and her bridesmaids were designing and sowing their dresses and headpieces and finishing touches the morning of the wedding. From what I remember, most of her friends are designers and they all helped her put together the reception etc. Most of the guests wore handmade paper crowns later during the night and the dancing was insane. Kali’s Husband, Adam, runs a well known coffee shop in Portland, OR.

Ceremony and reception took place at “Bella Madrona Gardens” which is a private residence outside of Portland.


Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
